#China deploys drones for #SouthChinaSea surveillance - Air and land system steps up monitoring of contested area amp-scmp-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/amp.scmp.c…
A network of drones has been deployed by Beijing to monitor islands & reefs of the disputed South China Sea. The network, run by the Ministry of Natural Resources, covers the hard-to-reach islands & the vast open waters of the area, according to the ministry’s South Sea Bureau.
The drone communication chain has “extremely enhanced our dynamic surveillance of the South China Sea, and expanded our reach to the high seas”, the bureau said on its official website.
The air-land system consists of numerous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) carrying high-definition cameras, road-mobile communication vehicles acting as transmission relay stations, as well as a satellite-based maritime information communication network, according to the bureau.
